Kingfisher fishing

Postby BombayDave » Wed Dec 26, 2018 7:35 pm

First time I have seen a Kingfisher(NZ) actually diving into water to catch fish. Blocked drainage channel filled up with water and thousands of mosquito fish(only arrived this year). The bird was sitting in a tree above water and regulary dived into water to catch these small fish. Spent about 20 mins doing this then sat on a post for 5 mins to dry off.
